The Garden Community for Garden Lovers

Some of this years successes.


It is very easy to concentrate on the negative this year, but I do have some positives.
This combination of honeysuckle and jasmine has never looked so good, must be the rain.
The french marigolds I grew from seed and planted them much closer this year

My favourite geraniums, wonderful for filling a space and rambling so naturally.

To finish, my favourite Fuchsia Rufus the Red

This is the first time I have blog’d so even though the first 2 pics are the wrong way round, I will keep trying and hopefully get it right next time.

Actually that is a very good point Lizzie, my honeysuckle is doing really well this year, lots more flowers and they have lasted for ages and no signs of turning yet, the perfume is lovely, good job really as the poor roses are really struggling, you have done well with your blog, in fact I wouldn`t have noticed about the pics if you hadn`t pointed it out, lol...

Great blog. Your marigolds are looking lovely. I grew some from seed as well but they bolted so not looking as good as yours. Welcome to GoY

Your blog is great. I'm always a bag of nerves when I write a blog.
You're right. We should concentrate on the positives :o)

Great idea to combine honeysuckle and jasmine - I think I will give this a try next year!
